If we use current (or past) George Bush as the standard for President of the U.S., then Rudy Guiliani is the perfect Republican presidential candidate. The NY Times gives an example:

....City officials and a range of medical experts are now convinced that the dust and toxic materials in the air around the site were a menace. More than 2,000 New York City firefighters have been treated for serious respiratory problems. Seventy percent of nearly 10,000 recovery workers screened at Mount Sinai Medical Center have trouble breathing. City officials estimate that health care costs related to the air at ground zero have already run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, and no one knows whether other illnesses, like cancers, will emerge.....

So not only do we have the nearly 3,000 killed on 9/11 on Bush's watch, but it looks now like thousands more will die slowly, miserably and prematurely because of the outright, blatantly bad decisions and announcements made by then-Mayor Guiliani, the EPA, and of course the Bush Administration.

This still pales in comparison to the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, Afghanis, U.S. military, New Orleans residents, U.S. citizens without healthcare, etc. who have died as a direct result of the Supreme Court illegally handing the Offices of the President/VP of the United States to a C-minus cheerleader and a heartless/soulless CEO who can't tell the difference between a pheasant and a 70-something caucasian man (maybe he thought he was shooting peasants).

If nothing else, the Bush Administration will be remembered as the Death Administration.
